configure user outlook  with POP3 . by default POP3 e-mail accounts delete e-mail messages from the e-mail server when downloaded into Outlook.customize email download as per user requirement.

You can setup pop3 account for him so that all mails will get downloaded to his local outlook machine

But this will create new problem,
you won't be backup his mailbox..
 in that you can set outlook pop3 settings so that you can keep one copy of mail on server so that you can backup server copy of mail.

Just tell him it can't be done. Say "I'm sorry, but it's the way Microsoft made it, it isn't anything I have done".

That'll sort him. POP is poor in my opinion.

You could just point his email to a local .pst file but he would lose quite a bit of features.
Is there a valid reason he wants this done? He loses the drive on his PC, his emails will be lost as well.

The other option is to change the delivery location in Outlook to PST file.
However as already noted, this will remove everything from Exchange, and calendar etc will no longer be stored on the server. There will also be no backup of the content.

Personally I wouldn't have accepted the request and just told it cannot be done. I always see these requests as the person attempting to hide something.

Simon.

Dear All,

Thank you all for your comments. He is senior management and he is very sure that it can be done. Just need to be 100% sure before I tell him cannot.

Good luck OP. These types of people can be very tricky to deal with, you just need to be polite but firm and show conviction when you tell him that it's just not a feature that's available. The fact is, POP wasn't designed for that sort of stuff. If it was, then Microsoft would have used it as the main protocol for their email software!

Just explain that, and tell him it's an outdated system that was surpassed for these very reasons.
